Nativity Figures "Holly Family: Mary, Joseph and Baby Christ", Wood Painted by Hand

The Gardena has been the center of wood carving for 250 years already. In the middle of the 19th century the first Gardena sculptors found a way to the art academies. So the handicraft arts are combined with academic education. For example Ulrich Perathoner comes from a family with a long tradition of wood carving art which he brought to perfection in the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome.

His design of the "Ulrich Shepherd Crib" proves of his mastery.
